The Godfather is one of the simplest, yet most enjoyable cocktails I know of. Needing only two ingredients, the balance between the two that can be achieved is astounding. I was first introduced to this drink in a student-type bar with no cocktail list to speak of. My friend suggested it as a nice alternative to the standard vodka-coke/pint combinations and it didn’t take much explaining to get the bar staff on board. This is one to be sipped and savoured, a great drink to start – or end – any night.
